I live in a rental so I am a little constrained with what I can do to my yard but I still want it to feel magical. I have a salvaged fireplace mantel anchored to the wall near my outdoor table and I have filled it with mismatched candles and my Quan-Yin statue. I add branches and whatever else catches my eye and usually, she has a fresh flower in her lap. Makes me smile.
